Tim Lincecum used to be skinny. Then he got kinda buff, to be honest. Then sorta got skinny again. Each time he went up or down in weight, there was a sentiment expressed that the change will do his pitching good. So:
Now, he’s never been fat or anything so this isn’t a BSHOL situation, but it sorta reminds me of it.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.
Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.
Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
